Seek them out

Editor: The letter from Debbie Atkinson (The Times, April 8) makes me think the writer needs to get “plugged in” politically. The fact that she knows that Mark Warawa has a family is because he has been an MP for this consituency for many years.

She should make up her mind by looking closely at the viewpoints of all parties running in the riding. and then make up her mind. It would take a full editorial page to explain that.

Instead, I suggest that she read, watch and get involved. Frankly, I am shocked that she hasn’t found all of the information she needs on the Internet regarding what each party will do for her.

Go to Warawa’s office and speak to him face to face and ask him what he will do for you. Go to Piotr Majkowski’s office and ask him the same.

The Liberal and Green candidates would also welcome your questions and meet you with an outstretched handshake.

A word of warning — they may have fresh doughnuts, but the coffee is always lousy in campaign offices. You might want to bring your own.

Clayton Randle,


Editor’s note — The Times will be publishing more detailed information about each federal candidate in next week’s editions.
